Description: VLAN management daemon
 VLANd is a python program intended to make it easy to manage
 port-based VLAN setups across multiple switches in a network. It is
 designed to be vendor-agnostic, with a clean pluggable driver API to
 allow for a wide range of different switches to be controlled
 together.
 .
 Various of the switch vendors have management applications available
 which should be able to do a similar job, but they're typically not
 scriptable, or locked to only control their own vendor's
 equipment. VLANd is designed (and hoped!) to be better. We've found
 that other network management programs also exist, but either they
 don't manage VLANs in the way we want or they depend on large
 frameworks like Openstack.
 .
 VLANd is designed to augment Linaro's LAVA hardware and software
 testing infrastructure, but is hoped also to be useful as a standalone
 tool.
